On Tap 6/27/14: Cider Fest Pt. 1 Pineapple Hula


On Tap is brought to you by Rosati’s Pizza, 701 S. Gregory, Urbana.

It’s a special day on On Tap: Cider Fest!  We haven’t really delved into the world of ciders but it’s gaining some momentum out and about so I thought we’d test drive a few.

We kick things off with Pineapple Hula from the CiderBoys.  This was definitely the sweetest of the ciders we tried today.  I kind of dug it.  I thought the pineapple came through without being over bearing and made for a really drinkable cider.  I couldn’t do more than one, but I did like it.  The rest of the crew were ok with it as well.

Ryan: 6.8
Squish 5.25
Shane: 6.0
Me 6.0

So overall, not too bad.  But the day is young.  Shane paired this up with what turned out to be a really good combo for all our ciders, the pork chop sandwich.  Very simple; grilled pork chop, bbq on the side, that’s it.  You can church it up if you want, but I didn’t think it was necessary.
